ABSTRACT

Objectives : The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical application of warming acupuncture to a patient with chronic olecranon bursitis. Methods : We treated the patient only by warming acupuncture. We treated him 6 times for 2 weeks. We estimated the effect of treatment through measuring circumference of the affected elbow, horizontal diameter and vertical diameter of a bursa. Results and Conclusions : Following the treatment, the symptom was improved. Circumference of an elbow changed from 28 cm to 24.8 cm, horizontal diameter of a bursa changed from 8 cm to 4.5 cm, vertical diameter of a bursa changed from 9.5 cm to 5.8 cm. The present results suggest that warming acupuncture has the positive effects on a chronic olecranon bursitis.
